2002 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


I am 25 years old and this is the first
car that I have purchased on my own. It
is a perfect introduction to Volvo's
line of cars. I started looking at cars
in the Honda
price range and made the mistake of
test driving the S40. I fell in love
with my car and got it loaded with all
the whistles and bells. I haven't had
any problems except for a rattle in the
front "fixed" headrests that luckily
are covered under warranty. I would
recomend that people take advantage of
the internet for bargaining and pricing
the car that they want. I ended up
saving over $800 by purchasing in
Tacoma and paid just below the Edmunds
TMV price.

Best Features

My favorite feature is the zip. This car may not have a V6, but when you need it to go, it goes. It has very good response time with the 1.9 Turbo. Of course this all makes the ABS Brake system fairly important as well.

Worst Features

This model has plastic door handles. The plastic looks and feels cheap.
